More jammy jams

Hudson and his new cousin Hayes in their matching jammies.

Somewhat elevated risk, seven and a half percent chance, the form said–my mother’s mother’s mother died of breast cancer when my grandmother was eight, even though that’s the only case in the extended family that I know of.

So. Had the mammogram this morning and got it over with.

Got the results this afternoon–to my surprise. Already? Cool.

And that’s that. Feels great not to have to worry about it.

Don’t put it off. It’s too much fun watching grandkids grow up.


Edited to add: I have been corrected by my sister. Our great aunt had breast cancer and is the only one who had breast cancer but our great grandmother had what was most likely colon cancer–somehow I’ve had it wrong for forever.

Oh I can’t stand the cuteness! Look at those darlings! They’ll grow so quickly. Yesterday was my Leo’s second birthday already. So good to hear of your good results too.

Isn’t it so good to hear something positive from the medics.

Much more fun to watch those cute kids grow than to worry about cancer.

Heh. They’re very cute fellows and I’m glad your breast cancer risk is perhaps once-removed, but not so thrilled about the colon cancer connection. (Paternal grandmother and aunt, here.)
